My Thoughts: I loved how the illustrations captured Star's emotions. Although the story was heavier than other children's books I read, I liked that it offers hope, "Always look up." I like that Star tries to cheer others up with the horse that helped her during her sadness when her butterfly friend Twinkle dies. The … Continue reading Butterfly Love From Above: Book Review
My Thoughts: Beautiful Illustrations that bring the characters to life with vibrant colors! It was fun flying to Hawaii with Doctoroo and trying to solve the mystery of the red-itching skin the pig dancers encounter. Was it something in the volcanos? Or perhaps poison ivy? You must hike and look at plants to find out. … Continue reading Doctoroo & the Case of the Red-Hot Hawaiians: Book Review/Author Interview/ Giveaway
Another great read! My daughters and I enjoyed following Alycat as she experienced a backward day and tried to make the best of it. The author used fun phrases that had my girls giggling as we tried to solve the mystery lure of what was causing such a catty-wumpsy day. The illustrations are vibrant and … Continue reading Alycat and the Cattywampus Wednesday: Bookreview and Giveaway!
A humorous book that teaches table manners to children. My daughters enjoyed the story and the fun illustrations! It says for ages 3-11, but I had to define some of the vocabulary for my 6-year-old. It did lead to an interesting conversation about etiquette. It slowed the flow to pause and explain words, but it … Continue reading The Elegant Emu: Book Review & Giveaway!

This is probably my favorite children's book I've read this year, and I think my six-year-old and two-year-old agree. A cat and dog story of how we can get along with others different from us, have fun, and help each other in time of need. It was cute to see the ruckus caused on both … Continue reading Sunny and the Cats: Book Review and Giveaway!
My thoughts: This is definitely a whodunit mystery, with the author displaying a great sense of humor. I got a copy of the audiobook from the author and iReadtours, but was not required to give a good review. The narrator did an outstanding job as the elderly Doctor Noah, who tells a reporter of the … Continue reading The Bones of Amoret: Audiobook Review + Giveaway

Hunt: Author Interview & Giveaway!
Since my divine intervention last year (when a lady saw me crying in a vision), I often say, "God Sees You." It isn't a motivational cheer or empty words I offer during dark seasons. It's a promise. He sees us. God pulled me through broken pieces and proved that he saw me. I knew he … Continue reading Bible Study Giveaway!

So I'm excited to announce authors Jaime Jo Wright, Jennifer Q. Hunt, Bethany Cox, and RN Sherry Grant will be guest blogging … Continue reading Happy May 🌻
